Question about Inverter Electronics - Others
Could be a number of reasons it quit. You crossed the power wires blowing the diodes for protection, or you over loaded it an blew a MOSFET, the fuse blew, or a number of things. You have got to be more specific.

SOURCE: power inverter
Most likely a fuse. Check for a fuse on the inverter itself or one inline with the plug. Usually you can screw off the tip of the plug and replace the fuse inside.

SOURCE: power going up and down
An incandescent lamp that is cold takes approximately 10 times the running current initially. The inverter MAY not be able to start the 500 watt lamp if its protection circuits sense the very low starting resistance of the lamp.
Test the inverter on some other device first.

Your said your battery is rated for 85 amps / hour. This means 1 hour at 85 amps, 42 hours at 2 amps, 85 hours at 1 amp or any number of hours in between determined by 85 divided by the number of amps of the load connected. The microwave uses 600 watts. Since we can't reliably determine amps in an AC circuit - I can get close using the DC calculation. I'll assume 120 Volts at 600 watts for the microwave. Watts = Volts multiplied by Amps, so the microwave uses about 5 amps (120 x 5 = 600). HOWEVER, this is not an accurate way to determine AC amps when voltage and watts are known. I'll bet the microwave has the actual amount of amps (along with the model, voltage, wattage etc.) on a label on the back, side or inside the door. This is the information that is accurate. Use the amp rating provided on the name plate to determine how long the batter will last. Assume 8.5 amps is the value provided on the name plate.. 85 amp hour (85 AH) battery would supply an 8.5 amp (8.5 A) load for 10 hours because: 85 AH divided by 8.5 A = 10 H. The quality of the battery, and the losses contributed by the inverter will reduce the actual amount of time that the battery could supply the microwave.
I hope this helps!

Testimonial: "THANK YOU YOU HAVE BEEN VERY HELPFUL"
It sounds like the fuse that protects you cigarette lighter is blown.
After you have replaced the fuse, check the voltage again. 0.015vdc would not have powered anything that in manufactured to operate on 12vdc.
When powering anything over about 250W, I would suggest connecting directly to the battery to avoid overloading the lighter circuit.
